When NetherRealm Studios celebrated their one year anniversary, the team offered a livestream of a staff tournament of Mortal Kombat (2011) featuring some new gameplay changes that have not been released. This morning, those changes became live with the latest online hotfix release. The changes will be in effect the next time you launch the game.

The official hotfix notes for this release are now included below:

You should no longer see online desyncs on Xbox that are related to alternate costumes or classic costume DLC packs.
  • With the exception of Human Cyrax and Human Sektor, everyone’s alternate costumes should behave the same as their primary costumes and have the exact same move properties.

  • Adjusted wakeup attacks’ window of execution and vulnerability.

  • Some low attacks, such as a handful of characters sweeps, were incorrectly able to be parried.

  • Fixed some cases where a player could get stuck in his reaction while landing.

  • Made some minor collision hitbox adjustments.

  • Made several gameplay balance adjustments.

  • General bug fixes.

After the massive success of the online digital series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Kevin Tancharoen has been given the green light by Warner Bros. to fully develop a return of Mortal Kombat to the big screen. According to the Hollywood Reporter and Tancharoen himself, New Line has tapped Tancharoen and original Rebirth writer Oren Uziel to bring back the Mortal Kombat series to the big screen.


The short was viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube, and although no movie deal materialized, he was asked to direct the 10-episode web series, which debuted in April, attracting more than 15 million unique visitors.

Off that success, Warners and New Line execs thought it was time to try to revisit a big-screen effort. (New Line made a Mortal Kombat movie in 1995, which grossed more than $70 million domestically and helped launch a directing career for Paul W. S. Anderson. A follow-up movie in 1997, however, fizzled.)


We wish all the best to Tancharoen and Uziel and can't wait for the final product on the silver screen!
